Republicans' many health care flip-flops

The best way to summarize the Senate health care effort right now is that no one has any idea what's going on. They might vote on a replacement bill, or maybe a tweaked version of that replacement bill, or maybe the same repeal bill they voted on in 2015 (which wipes out much of the Affordable Care Act without replacing it).

But while the confusion has escalated this week, it's not new. Lawmakers have made a lot of contradictory statements throughout the process, sometimes asking for entirely different things at various points in this hectic eight-month journey. We've compiled some of the biggest about-faces.
